Vintage Video: Doobie Brothers (1973)

51mXKEkIJIL._SL160_The Midnight Special was a successful music variety show which aired on NBC at 1:00 a.m. on Saturday mornings following The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. The program aired from 1973 until 1981 and featured “live” performances, in contrast to the often blatant lip-synching that most other, similar programs offered. The Midnight Special’s run ended when Dick Ebersol, the show’s producer, was shifted over to the ailing Saturday Night Live. Ebersol brought the notion of live rock performances to SNL. In this Vintage Video clip from 1973, the Doobie Brothers perform their #11 hit, “Listen To The Music” from the album Toulouse Street. The Doobies are in Dr. Rock’s Playlist Vault and Toulouse Street is available for download or as a CD.
